DC Legends Launch Trailer Hypes Action-Packed Mobile RPG

To celebrate the launch of the mobile RPG "DC Legends," Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released an official launch trailer for the game, teasing the plot and gameplay for those who have yet to check out the DC All-Access coverage.

The latest DC Comics-based mobile game, which is free to play, sees the publisher's greatest heroes unite to take on the threat of Nekron and the looming Blackest Night -- something longtime "Green Lantern" readers are quite familiar with. Forming a team of various fan-favorite characters, the player strategically battles villains using a wide range of abilities and tactics, malleable depending on the characters that are chosen over the course of the game.

An official press release touts of "DC Legends'" plot, "As the shadow of the Blackest Night prophecy falls across every world, willpower alone cannot save the shattered DC Universe. Players will need to collect allies such as Green Arrow, Doomsday, Wonder Woman, Batman and many more, to form teams of Super Heroes and Super-Villains that battle Nekron and the Manhunters. As players battle to decide the fate of all life in the universe, they can unlock the ability to make their heroes Legendary, acquiring remarkable new super powers, powerful stat increases, and enhanced character designs."

“We think DC fans will appreciate the authenticity and depth we’ve brought to DC Legends,” Jonathan Knight, VP, Studio Head at ‎WB Games San Francisco, said in a statement. “The game delivers an experience that's both exciting and engaging, empowering players to strategically customize their teams and upgrade their super powers, as they battle against other players across the world.”

The official description for the game reads, "In DC Legends, the battle against Nekron and the Manhunters spans across a wide variety of DC locales, including Metropolis, Themyscira, Thanagar and many more. The cinematic action and vivid environments bring each encounter to life as players unleash Superman’s Heat Vision or Bizarro’s Flame Breath on wave after wave of undead foes. They can also compete against other players in PvP combat and demonstrate their superior team-building skills as they climb the ranks in 14 unique Leagues with escalating rewards.."
